How do you respond to “all things”?
Take a moment and read the following carefully.
Do not allow familiarity to rob you of the Voice of the Spirit.
Yes, many of these verses will be known, but do we hear what is being said?
Give heed to…
What did the Psalmist do?
David was the writer...this Psalm was apparently written after David had feigned madness before the Philistine king Abimelech. Abimelech sent him away saying “do I lack madmen”…
1 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul will make its boast in the Lord; The humble will hear it and rejoice.
3 O magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
9 O fear the Lord, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want.
What did you observe?
Let us determine to do what David did…
Bless the Lord at all times.
Praise the Lord with our mouths continually.
Boast in the Lord.
Magnify the Lord.
Exalt His name together.
In all things.
In all circumstances.
In all times.
Note that David had been in trouble.
He sought the Lord.
The Lord answered him.
The Lord delivered him from all his fears.
The Lord saved him from all his troubles.
This does not mean that fear and trouble will not come.
But, in the Lord, we are delivered.
We see that those who look to the Lord are radiant, their faces are not ashamed.
What countenance do you have?
Saints of the Lord are told to fear him.
We are to fear the Lord.
No one else.
In fearing the Lord we will not lack, we will not want.
Lastly, the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him.
Think about that.
We are “encamped about” by the Lord.
Therefore, fear not.
